In approximately 1,000 A.D., environmental changes forced the Kumeyaay people to move east.this group became known as the Southern Diegueno people. The Southern Diegueno (the original San Diegans) are the ancestors of the Sycuan Band in Dehesa Valley.
We are pleased that you have taken the time to learn more about the Sycuan Band of the Kumeyaay Nation.
Defining who or what Sycuan is can be difficult. We think you will come to find that Sycuan consists of many things and that Sycuan's identity is as unique as the people and traditions it consists of.
